How to Take Care of Trees 

Trees remove tons of carbon dioxide out of the air every year. Although as the years go by, as the carbon emission goes up the number of trees go down. As it seems, it is not a good sign for our world. The effects of this are clearly seen throughout the world in forms of global warming, typhoons, and poor air quality. These are some of the effects of not taking care of the trees around us.


The trees are slowly dying yet only some of us are doing things about it. It is  a sad reality but it is the truth and this means that we as a people need to come together and fix it together. Even if there are people fixing it now it will not be enough to combat the amount of carbon emission we are mass producing everyday. Here are some of the ways to help preserve and care for trees around you.

One of the most important thing to do when taking care of trees is to water it constantly and to only hire a professional when a tree removing and cutting service is really needed. This is especially important when there is little to no rain happening in your country. Trees are plants and it is common knowledge to all that plants need water to survive. Watering them from time to time will help it live longer and live healthier. A mature tree would need at least 25 gallons of water to help it survive per week.

That is equivalent to at least 1.5 inches of rain water poured down onto it. It may seem daunting to water the tree but it will be easier the more that you do it. The good thing about watering trees is that when it rains you would not have to think about watering it as nature will be doing most of the heavily lifting for you. Although during seasons of summer or spring wherein rain is rare, the tree would need a little assistance from you.

Another way to take care of trees is to prune it. Pruning trees is basically the selective removal of certain parts of the tree which are the branches, buds, or roots. These pruning may be done by professionals through tree services if you are not qualified to do so. However here are some of the ways a professional would do it. Usually pruning would be done in the seasons of winter and summer.

These are the best times to do it because it is the coldest and hottest season of the year. It is important to care for the trees at these times. Furthermore, the worst time to prune is fall. This is the season wherein pruning should be avoided as this is the time wherein the tree would be healing itself through various fungi and bacteria that would help it heal from any potential wounds.

The trees around us should not be taken for granted. Our trees take long to grow and a lot of our mature trees that help us clean out the air of carbon dioxide are rapidly dying due to natural disasters and deforestation in order to make new infrastructures like factories and resorts. These are some of the simple tips on how to take care of the trees.
